That's such a great question! I have already come out of pocket to pay for some of the funds for pre-production for the film since I didn't have funds set aside to start shooting. I just knew that the story needed to be told and I wanted to do whatever I could to tell it. Because we are shooting a film overseas, the costs have to be converted to Euros, which makes everything more expensive. Honestly, we need to raise MUCH more than $20,000 to shoot the best film that can be done. If we exceed our goal, we will use that money to travel to Curacao as well to document the celebration of the tradition there. Additionally, there are many historians, scholars and individuals who are not based in the Netherlands who would add valuable insight to the discussion. We would like to interview them on camera as well. Making a film is expensive. The more money we're able to raise, the better!
